Episode 8: Why Would You Parent Your Partner?


Should You Have To Parent Your Partner?

I got asked an interesting question: would I expect to have to parent my partner?

I have strong opinions about this aspect of Australian culture that’s always been a source of irritation for me.

Plus Part 2 of my learnings and experience during the amazing Persistent Pain Management Program that I’m lucky to be a part of before my upcoming operation to remove the painful pelvic mesh.

Menopause, Marriage and Motherhood

How about you? Do you think you need to parent your partner?

Changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife.

As a Podcaster I create a safe space and community for the stuff of Midlife. I provide more than a hub of information I am changing the dialogue around menopause and midlife for women with fun, love and laughter.

After (hopefully, successfully!) raising four kids, being married for 30 years, going from regular month-to-month pay cheque jobs to creating a multi-million dollar property development business (and a number of other businesses with varying degrees of success and failure), to going broke and starting again…

…there’s a heap of experiences and life lessons just waiting to be shared.

Life is about learning from our mistakes and the heartaches we might encounter, but it’s also about having fun and making sure we’re surrounded by laughter…

Which is what you’ll find here in the podcasts & blogs: the highs and lows, successes and failures, sprinkled with fun, love and laughter, because it makes life just so much brighter.

This is all about sharing those things rather than keeping them to ourselves, listening to “ordinary” women’s stories and relating to them, finding common ground and inspiration.
